Grandmas Individual Cheese Cake Recipe

This past weekend, we hosted our daughter's third birthday, and my grandma surprised me, and showed up early to the party with this tasty treat.

Okay so I could have taken a better picture...but let's chalk it up to me being a Novice blogger, and honestly at the time I didn't know she was going to share a recipe, I had no idea they were homemade I just assumed it was a no bake cheesecake thing at first sight.  (I should have known better right...this is grandma we are talking about...she is a definite from scratch cooker.)  At first bite it was obvious it was not from a tasted soo much better than a box mix.  When she did share the recipe with me it was too late to take a better photo because everyone ate them..two cupcake tins full....just vanished without a trace......

Anyway here is the ingredient list:

18 Vanilla Wafers
1/2 c sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 pkgs (8oz) cream cheese
1 can (22oz) of pie filling  (cherry, blueberry,strawberry, etc

Place 18 paper cupcake liners in muffin tins.  Put 1 wafer in each liner.  Mix eggs, sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla together at medium speed for 5 minutes.  Spoon into liners over the wafer until 3/4 full.  Bake  at 375 for 12-15 minutes.  Let cool, then spoon pie filling of your choice on top.  Chill and serve.

In my opinion this is a perfect portion size if you want that great treat without having to feel guilty about enjoying it.  You can also reduce the calories by using an artificial sweetener like splenda in place of the sugar.  You could possibly also try a reduced fat cream cheese, although I have not yet tried this recipe with lesser fat cream cheese.  If you try it let me know how it works out.  Either way, they are sure to disappear.

I will be sharing this post over at  Homey Oy My! 

as well as frequenting this link ups to get some great ideas as we continue to prepare for the holidays.  I am finding that doing some things homemade is making our resources and ability to bless other go so much farther. Please come check it out!
